179. Sedimentary, my dear Watson

drumlins & moraines
all over the living room carpet,

laccoliths & lopoliths
in the kitchen
with the unwashed tectonic plates.

yes, it’s a veritable smorgasbord
of geological fancies round our gaff.

and a U-shaped glaciated valley
on the doorstep –

I told him to get in line
behind the moho
& the pyroclastic flows
or there’d be
trouble at’mid Atlantic Ridge;

there’s a bit of a rift already.
